5-Actions to Help You Lead Yourself

Tracy Washington

Executive Leadership Advisor

We are discussing how to be a leader of yourself, on the job, in your home and the marketplace. It is difficult to lead others if you do not know how to direct yourself. Jesus Christ is our perfect example a true servant-leader who governed himself with restraint and excellence. Our guest Tracy Washington is one of the nation’s leading trainers on Relationships, Human Behavior and Leadership.  She states, “Leadership is an influence. Our position is to become someone that someone else wants to follow.”

Tracy works with mid to senior level managers to help them improve relationships with teams, upper management, and customers so that they establish trust and respect that create a culture of profitability and success for themselves and their organizations.  She also runs a coaching program entitled “Executive RoundTable for Women in Leadership” to help women leaders elevate their leadership style.

Tracy is passionate about helping individuals and corporate clients profit by experiencing better professional and personal relationships.  Ms. Washington helps women find their true passions in order to reach their full potential. She states, “A woman that can make things happen understands they have power. Some feel like an imposter, but the feeling never goes away. We must walk with it, learn how to manage it and walk in confidence. “

Her key points of learning how to lead yourself are below:

1.        Self-care is first. You can’t get anything done from a deficit. As women, we give of ourselves without giving back to ourselves. Take care of yourself so you can properly care for others.

2.        Know who you are.  Do a personal assessment so you understand your unique qualities and identity in Christ. Understand that you are more than the roles you play. Take the time to figure out who you are.

3.        Inventory the relationships around you. Evaluate everyone in your life. Are you spending time with people who don’t add value to you? Are they pouring into you are taking from you?

4.        Raise your level of success. Look at the things that you don’t have to increase your worth. Invest in classes, coaching and read to help you get to your next level of success. Look at your finances and be a good steward.

5.        Don’t compare yourself to others. Get a mirror and look at your reflection. Appreciate who you are and where you are at this moment.

As we launch the Shine Now!Magazine, I had the opportunity to interview Melinda Wang, Marketing Extraordinaire, from Love with Food, our sponsor. The founder, Aihui Ong, a former software engineer birthed her company from a place of compassion and purpose.  Ms. Ong took a year to travel after undergoing a painful divorce. While she visited a variety of countries,there remained one constant, poverty among children. Everywhere she traveled she saw hundreds of kids in need.

Upon returning home, her own friends were experiencing difficulties. One with breast cancer and another with a failed food business. Aihui found a new purpose as she sought to assist her friends. She used her ability to be loving with food, coding and knowledge of the internet to create a food-based company that would also help children in need.

Love with Food is a monthly snack subscription service that helps you discover unique, junk-free, all natural or organic snacks at your doorstep. Every box donates at least 1 meal to fight hunger all over America. Over 16 million kids face hunger in the United States.

In honor of the Shine Now!Mag launch, Love with Food is giving away three organic and all natural snack boxes. Enter to win one here: http://gvwy.io/vieufxw

The company offers all-natural and gluten free snacks in three subscription packages, which range from $7.99 to $19.99 a month. Use the code: SHINE to get $5.00 discount on your first box. Over 1 million meals have been donated to food pantries across America.

Heart Health: 5-Steps to Gratitude
headshot1.jpg
Special Guest:
Kandis Webb
 Founder & Chief Gratitude Officer of Talent Gratitude

We continue our discussion regarding heart health and the importance of guarding our spirits. Our guest today, Ms. Kandis Webb, Founder & Chief Gratitude Officer of Talent Gratitude, empowers employees with the mental and emotional tools necessary to be purposeful, productive, and passionate at work. She is a life coach, speaker and author of “Gratitude @Work.” Gratitude is an emotion that opens us up to see the blessings in our life and in turn extend ourselves to help someone.

Side stepping stress is important for a healthy workplace and home. However, it begins within each individual. Join us as we discuss the health benefit of experiencing gratitude. Kandis shares her five steps to getting to gratitude.

The summary of steps include:

·         Understanding Self – Instead of playing the victim but make changes to ourselves 

·         Move forward from stressful event- visualize yourself standing in a place of gratitude 

·         Love unconditionally –First love ourselves so we are free to love others 

·         Set boundaries – Be clear about the types of people you allow in your life and their activities 

·         Be Happy – Do things that make you happy with feeling guilty

Protecting our hearts must begin with identifying the actions we take that are unhealthy.  Being mindful of our behaviors and the people we are around plays a major role in our ability to experience gratitude.
